    The Good, The Bad, The Weird

    ★★★★★

    Kim Jee-woon directs an excellent western, which is an extremely fun ride from start to finish. The numerous action set pieces all done with minimal CGI are just amazing with the opening train sequence probably being a highlight. The film is also quite funny, with Song Kang-ho as Ta-goo "The Weird" having many great comedic moments. His fight scenes remind me of Jackie Chans creative fight choreography, with a perfect mix of action and comedy. He is probably the most…

    ★★★★

    Well acted film, which drifts between the horror and thriller genres seamlessly. Martin Sheen is great as the slimy and ambitious politician dreaming of a run for the presidency. Christopher Walken is heartbreaking as the main character who is cursed with precognitive visions. He loses everything due to these visions, even the love of his life, but still strives to make the lives of those around him better.

    Kong: Skull Island

    ★★★½

    I thought it was pretty good, it has plenty of great visuals and the cast is overall stacked with some of best actors working today. Samuel Jackson does some fine work and is clearly giving off some Colonel Kurtz vibes. Honestly the whole film clearly borrows a lot from Apoclypse Now and other vietnam war movies. It is John C. Reilly who genuinely steals the show and is having a blast in this role. Tom Hiddelston and Brie Larson are…

    The Crimes of the Black Cat

    ★★★½

    Pretty good giallo clearly borrowing freely from early Dario Argento films. Still enjoyable with a killer whose weapon of choice is by far one of the most bizarre I've seen. The score is pretty good as well and grew on me as it went along. Anthony Steffen in the lead role, was pretty wooden but luckily the rest of cast made did a better job, with a highlight being Giovanna Lenzi. It has couple great suspense sequences and a great bloody finale which while feeling a bit rushed, still ends up being satisfying and memorable.

    ★★★

    This film has great performances from it's three main stars Denzel Washington, Rami Malek and Jared Leto. Otherwise the film is competently directed by John Lee Hancock, but story at times can be a mess only held together through the aforementioned acting. For instance some character decisions are just horrendous and clearly motivated to move the plot forward. I still found it enjoyable though and a decent police procedural thriller especially when compared to films like The snowman or Sleepless. Despite a fairly weak script it still has some decent twists and turns and manages to separate itself from lesser films in the genre.

  • Dr. No

    Dr. No

    ★★★½

    While not the greatest Bond film, it still introduces the character in fine fashion and Sean Connery as James Bond arrives fully formed from the start, he just absolutely nails it.

    The film starts of fairly strong but begins to drag a bit in the middle at times and Bond doesn't really have to face any real viable threats except in the excellent Tarantula scene. Dr.No as played by Joseph Wiseman is a creepy villain, sadly he doesn't get a…
